Community Partners

United Way of Northern California partners with non-profit organizations each year to create better lives in the North State. 

Through Community Impact Grants, UWNC is able to collaborate and financially support life-changing programs throughout Northern California.

In 2018, UWNC will award $100,000 to 28 organizations, with grants ranging from $2,500 to $5,000. 

All projects funded align with United Way’s mission to fight for the health, education and financial stability of every person in our communities. Programs benefiting youth were a significant funding priority this year, as youth development and enrichment are key goals of the community-wide Prosperity Initiative led by United Way. Other United Way grants focused on basic needs, supporting food programs, domestic violence services, drug and alcohol treatment and homelessness initiatives.
